One of the frequently touted advantages of using software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions is their maintenance-free and supposedly inherently secure nature. These services are maintained by their providers and users do not have to worry about configuring, troubleshooting, and updating them. Things are not as simple as that, though.
SaaS solutions are far from invulnerable and they can become serious cybersecurity problems. While it can be said that securing them is mostly not the responsibility of users, it is important to emphasize that they are still predisposed to various forms of cyberattacks. One report says that 40 percent of SaaS assets are at risk for data leaks because of poor or lack of management.
